Production News: December Delivery Advice For Christmas Orders
Christmas Eve is officially only two weeks away, which means it’s high time for our December Despatch & Delivery update. Read on to find out this year’s last posting dates if you want to order name labels for Christmas!
December Despatch & Delivery Advice For 2021
As usual, there will be seasonal delays throughout December. If you need your name labels to arrive before Christmas, we recommend ordering as early as you can to avoid disappointment.
Of course, Christmas comes with its own special brand of chaos so, if it does come down to placing a last minute order, here’s the despatch and delivery advice you’ll need to keep in mind.
Christmas Despatch of Stikins ® Name Labels
We’ll be keeping up our usual production levels until we close on Wednesday 22nd December.
This means we will be printing name labels every week day (Monday to Friday) up to 3pm. Orders placed by 3pm will be despatched same day. We will despatch orders placed after 3pm, or over the weekend, on the next working day.
So, if you order by 3pm on Wednesday 22nd December, your name labels will be printed and posted before Christmas.
We will not print orders placed after this time until we re-open on Tuesday 4th January 2022.
Christmas Delivery Of Stikins ® Name Labels
Standard delivery is free and uses Royal Mail’s first class service. Royal Mail aim to deliver first class items on the next day but this service is not guaranteed. At this time of year, first class post is likely to experience delays. Services are also being delays by ongoing restrictions and staff shortages. All of this means that we are advising customers that orders may take up to seven working days to arrive.
So, if you need your name labels to arrive before Christmas, please order as early as possible to avoid disappointment.
Last Posting Dates For Christmas 2021
Royal Mail’s last posting date for first class mail this year is: Tuesday 21st December
This means that you need to order no later than 3pm on Tuesday 21st December if you want your name labels to (possibly*) arrive before Christmas.
*PLEASE NOTE: Royal Mail’s last posting dates are RECOMMENDATIONS ONLY and first class post is NOT a guaranteed service. We recommend ordering as soon as you can to avoid disappointment.
